Long Term Disaster Recovery Working Group
On September 29, 2009, the President asked HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan and DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano to co-chair the newly-formed Long Term Disaster Recovery Working Group. Composed of the Secretaries and Administrators of some 20 departments and agencies, the Working Group will provide the President with recommendations on how to improve long-term disaster recovery in partnership with stakeholders at all levels.
This high level, strategic initiative, will include a large outreach effort to obtain recommendations to support the work of the Long Term Disaster Recovery Working Group. Specifically, the input informs (1) the development of a Report to the President, which will include recommendations for improving long-term disaster recovery and (2) the development of a National Disaster Recovery Framework, which will provide detailed operational guidance to recovery organizations under existing authorities.
